pl add marked

At Cineplex Odeon International Village in Vancouver: 12:20-3:00-5:35-8:05-10:45.

Tweet from Continuum star Rachel Nichols.

Jacob Tierney directs Preggoland but this fake pregnancy comedy belongs to Vancouver actor Sonja Bennett who wrote the screenplay and stars as 35-year-old grocery worker Ruth, who pretends to be pregnant after being de-friended by all her friends after trainwreck behaviour at a baby shower. James Caan is the deliriously-happy-father-who-thinks-he’s-going-to-be-a-grandfather. Danny Trejo (Machete) plays against type as a doctor-who-can’t-practice-in-North-America who blackmails Ruth to keep his job as a grocery store cleaner. Preggoland filmed most of this movie in Maple Ridge except for the final day of shooting in April last year when crew careened around Vancouver from the Gossip nightclub downtown to a Commercial Drive park to Spanish Banks. I  regret missing the Spanish Banks scene of Ruth sitting in despair on a log with her fake belly askew.

Preggoland debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last September to good reviews and was voted most popular Canadian film at the Vancouver International Film Festival a month later.
